Members of N.C. Central University’s Student Government Association shared their fall semester achievements and spring agendas at the 2018 State of the Campus address last Wednesday in the Alfonso Elder Student Union.

SGA members talked about achievements such as improving dining options, hosting eight-week test-prep programs for the MCAT and GRE and allocating more than  $6,000 in funds to student organizations.

However, the representatives were quick to remind students there was still work to be done this semester. Student Body President Michael Hopkins encouraged everyone to get involved with projects.

Here are some initiatives that are in the works:

  • Extend the 1910 convenience store’s hours of operation.
  • Food trucks will be visiting campus beginning in February. Students will have the option to use their Flex Dollars.
  • Talk about creating more freshman meal plan options.
  • The Graduation Readiness series would require students to visit the Career Services Center at least twice a year during their junior and senior years to ensure job placement and/or internships.
  • “In Living Color: Making NCCU Beautiful” would include construction projects and remodeling to improve areas of campus that have been neglected.

Updates are also being made to the SGA constitution and SGA senate guidelines to meet the demands of a modern student government.
